    NFL Schedule 2019

    Where teams and fantasy players play weeks 14-16 greatly affects my rankings more than most. It is one of the few advantages in fantasy football that has not been exploited to it's value. The schedule release is like the Christmas gift you get to open on Christmas eve while you have to wait to open your main present on draft day. Love this time of year in the NFL

    Grade Your Teams Draft - 2016

    Steelers selected in the 25th spot in 2016. Round 1 Corner Artie Burns. Can't cover and a poor tackler. Lacks heart. Competing with Jarvis Jones as GM Kevin Colbert''s worst first round pick in 19 years. The next DB taken in the 2016 draft was 13 picks later Miami selecting pro bowl Xavien Howard. After week 6 last season Burns played only 15 snaps the rest of the way and not due to injury. Highly unlikely the Steelers pick up his 5th year option. Grade F- Round 2 Safety Sean Davis. Led team in tackles the past two seasons. Improved last season after switching from strong safety to free safety which was his natural position at Maryland. Far from elite, but above average. Grade C+ Round 3 DT Jevon Hargrave. The best pick of a crappy draft for the Steelers. Played in every game last season, starting 14. He has improved each season. Steelers are solid in the interior of the defense with Cameron Heyward, Stephon Tuitt, and Hargrave. Grade B Round 4 OT Jerald Hawkins. Injured for 2/3 of career. Missed all of 2018 with a torn quad. I doubt he sees the field much even if healthy in 2019 if he even makes the final roster. Grade F Round 6 LB Travis Freeney. Released in 2016 and signed to the practice squad. Saints claimed him but he never played for them. Last seen playing in the AAF. Grade F Round 7 WR Demaracus Ayers. Cut before the 2017 season. Last seen playing in the AAF Grade F Round 7 LB Tyler Matakevich. Played just 133 snaps in 3 years. Decent special teamer, good locker room guy. Lacks athleticism to compete at this level. Grade D Steelers would of been better off auto drafting in 2016. Final Grade F

    What If The Commish Accidentally Breaks The Rules?

    Perhaps the original doctrine of rules needs to be discussed in your league. As a commish, I would not agree to commish a league where I could not make changes as long as I let everyone know before the fantasy draft. Changes are necessary or we'd all still be playing in td only leagues without decimals. I've taken polls and announce that I am looking for input from league mates on rule/scoring changes, but as commish I need to do what I think is best for the league.

    NFL Draft Contest - It's Alive

    Well at least your unfair advantage of being a Browns fan is over. I'll be happy to win another FFToday T shirt and a shot at the three and out contest. Thanks for the contest Mike.

    Big Ben's leadership

    As a long time Steeler fan the argument of Ben being a good leader is ridiculous. I hope that the next Steeler QB has 15 straight seasons without a losing record, and I won't care what other people think about his leadership ability. Ben's elite stats alone prove he is a good leader. Wins 237, losses 77, 1 tie. 6th all time passing yards with 56,194. 6th all time wins for a QB. 7th all time passing TDs 363. 1st all time more than 450 yards passing in a game 6 times. Marino held the record at four, Brady and Peyton have 3. Never won a Super Bowl with Antonio Brown or Le'Veon Bell. Won two without them. All three are elite talent, but the three B chemistry never manifested into a ring.

    Who you Buying and who you selling?

    I made two big trades in one league the other day. We can keep 4 players for as long as we want to keep them. 4 points pass tds. Full ppr. 12 team league. I traded Patrick Mahomes and got Zeke Elliot straight up. Then I traded Antonio Brown, James Conner, Sony Michel, and a 14th round pick. I got DeAndre Hopkins and a 6 pick in return. My 4 keepers are Zeke, Melvin Gordon, Hopkins, and Odell Beckham Jr. It's never too early to improve your roster, and I like talking trades all year around.

    Ingram

    At Ingram's likely draft day value I will likely pass on him. Somebody else will take him before I will. Lamar Jackson rarely passes to the RB, the most I saw was to Dixon three times in one game. Touch and accuracy simply is not Lamar's game and not part of the Raven's gameplan.

    Players That Are "Being Held Back."

    I think that Carlos Hyde has been held back much of his career. KC will be the best offense he's ever played in, and I wouldn't be surprised if has the best year of his career.

    Who you Buying and who you selling?

    The point is Gurley is not healthy. He may never be healthy again. He has arthritis in the same knee he injured and had repaired in college. It is often portrayed that an acl knee injury is always repaired to a level of healed completely. That is false. In a redraft I would not take Todd Gurley in the first 25 picks. Someone else will draft him on draft day. In this thread of dynasty/keeper leagues I am selling Gurley for the most I can get asap. I will not be a buyer that's for sure.

    Who you Buying and who you selling?

    I very much appreciate the way the first amendment is respected here at Fantasy Football Today. Weepaws pushes the limit imo like shouting fire in a crowded movie theatre, over and over again. I come here for fantasy football discussion pure plain and simple. I apologize to everyone for being a part of derailing this thread. I still think this thread is worthwhile. I think about wheeling and dealing year around. I have more keepers than I can keep so I am looking to make trades now as I have found it a good time to make trades while the NFL is still fresh on owners' minds. I think Cole Beasley will sign with a team that will use him and is good buy in dynasty. I need a break from responding or engaging Weepaws into any discussion about spirituality. Go ahead and take further shots at me, I've turned my cheek. Does anyone know if/why Weepaws was banned from the Geek forarm?

    Who you Buying and who you selling?

    The definition of a bully is seek to harm. You left that part out in your argument that Jesus was a bully and you are a proud Bible bully. Please enlighten me where Jesus seeked to harm?? I was raised to stand up to the bully and not back down. The Bible is not the only context of my knowledge of Jesus. God Bless

    Who you Buying and who you selling?

    The definition of a bully is "seek to harm, intimidate, or coerce." Jesus was not a bully. Again, I stand with Jesus and you do not.

    Who you Buying and who you selling?

    Who are you to say I am not written on the book of life?? God makes that judgement, not you. What qualifies you to give keeper league advice although you do not play in a keeper/dynasty league? You have admitted that you do not even watch nfl games. You have added nothing to this thread except another opportunity to be a Bible bully.

    Who you Buying and who you selling?

    For those of us in keeper/dynasty leagues, unlike you, we do not need to see more moves before even thinking about answering this question. Nice post Matt's Eagles, it's a great question, and not too early. I will pass on all of your buy RBs Tevin Coleman will not be going anywhere to be the lead back, and this season without Freeman Coleman was not a RB1. Yes I am concerned about Gurley's knee injury history. Same with Ajayi's degenerative knee. As an AJ Green owner I will be happy to sell him low if I can get anything at all. I like Edelman and agree Godwin's value is rising. I agree with all of your sells except for OBJ. His ceiling as a WR1 for the next 7 years is too high for what I would get trading him.

    Least important position other than K/P?

    The greatest coach of all time has been the Superbowl formula. Certainly Brady, the greatest QB of all time qualifies as elite, and he figures into the Superbowl formula. Elite QBs win multiple Superbowls. That is the formula. When Bill retires the equation will change. I'll ask you again, how many great offensive minded coaches are there out there?
